Mumbai/IBNS: Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt, who was present beside the Kapoor family since the news of veteran actor Rishi Kapoor's demise broke in the morning, wrote a beautiful, heartfelt note for the Bobby star.

Bhatt, who is a rumoured girlfriend of Kapoor's actor son Ranbir Kapoor, penned a note which reads, "... for the past two years I've known him as a friend, a fellow Chinese food lover, a total cinema lover, a fighter, a leader, a beautiful storyteller, an extremely passionate tweeter, and a father!"

"In these past two years the love I have received from him is like a warm hug that I will always cherish! I thank the universe for giving me this opportunity to know him... today probably most of us can say he is like family - because that's how he made you feel! Love you! Rishi Uncle!.."
